Many Ford Mustangs have starred in movies, whether it be the 1969 Fastback in John Wick or the 1968 Shelby GT500 in The Thomas Crown Affair. But the most famous silver-screen ‘Stang is without a doubt the 1967 Shelby GT500 reimagined by designer Chip Foose to create an almost mythological muscle car named Eleanor for the 2000 remake of Gone in 60 Seconds.
Trans Am Worldwide is following up on the limited-edition, Burt Reynolds-signed Bandit Edition Trans Ams we told you about last year with an even more amazing 1,000-horsepower machine that is the company’s first Trans Am built on General Motors new Zeta platform seen on the sixth-generation Camaro that we love so much.
For 2018 Ford designers shrunk the Mustang‘s hood even lower, pressing it about three-quarters of an inch downward while incorporating relocated hood vents. That hood shrouds the new headlight eye slits, lending the Mustang an even more menacing visage than before. And to ensure no one overlooks the car’s new styling, it comes in a new signature shade called Orange Fury.
